      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.105 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q:spade: , Q:diamond:
      UTG2 calls $0,02, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0,10, 3 folds, UTG2 calls $0,08.

      Flop: ($0,23) K:heart: , J:club: , 2:diamond: (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $0,16, UTG2 calls $0,16.

      Turn: ($0,55) 7:club: (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $0,32, UTG2 folds.

      Final Pot: $0,87

      Preflop: standard raise with QQ
      Flop: I have made hand, although there is K on flop, C-bet is good choice, I think
      Turn: I have decided for one more barrel - openlimp from UTG is very weak play, except Kx (I think he would bet with king) he has in his range Jx, some lower pocket pairs, some gutshots - therefore it is better to protect my hand and bet for value. Or not?

      What would be the best line on river if he called on turn?

      Hello toteatoo,

      Do you think worse hands are paying you here? If I'd Bet the flop then I'd tend to Check it behind on the turn since there ain't gonna be many worse hands which pay you anyways.

      Best Regards.
